Very interesting to see what the war meant to the Vietnamese people. I had only seen American movies and documentaries about the war and in this museum you get the communist side of the story (many south Vietnamese people worked for the Americans, the museum...More

A few people here insist that the museum shows both sides. That is patently false. Like everything else in Vietnam, it is a censored and highly regulated piece of propaganda. For example, one reviewer - from Minnesota - wrote that the Tiger cages were used...More

The general set up inside is pretty basic, it's spread into different sections but overall there is a real feeling of tragedy and horror, but that's what it's about I guess. I wouldn't take small kids there, and it's not for the faint hearted. The...More

War museums are usually sad places and this is certainly that. We visited just after viewing the 10 part Ken Burns doco ‘The Vietnam War’. Together, they educated us on just how horrifying and morally corrupt this American led fiasco was, and the long term...More

OK, it's from another perspective. Provoked a lot of deep thoughts and empathy for those here on the ground. The war meant a lot of things to a lot of different people. Take it with a grain of salt.

When at Ho Chi Minh City, you must go to visit this museum. For sure, it is hard to see some pictures, so strong. It is history. I will go again next time.

Cheap entrance fee, air conditioned. The content inside can be upsetting so be warned. However I would highly recommend. Only drawback, you're meant to start at the top level, not the bottom. We weren't told but it was still great.

Found the museum really interesting. In my mid thirties so didn't witness the devastation of the Vietnam War first hand but this offers a real insight into it. Obviously, the museum and its exhibits have been out together by the Vietnamese so understandably there is...More
